We have videos of how to prepare mate!
To watch the videos - click the icons below.
Place yerba mate in the French press. Add hot water and steep for 3-10 minutes. We recommend using 1-2 tbsp of loose mate per cup. First, moisten the mate with cool water to protect the nutrients and flavor, then ADD HOT (NOT BOILING) WATER.
Place yerba mate in filter basket, then brew. We recommend using 1-2 tbsp of loose mate per cup. First, moisten the mate with cool water to protect the nutrients and flavor, then run the machine as usual.
Yerba mate brews well in most espresso makers. Place 1-2 tbsp of loose mate in a double espresso portafilter. Pull a long shot for a total of 4 oz. Great for making mate lattés.
Mate Latte Recipe:
Brew an 8 oz. cup of Guayakí Yerba Mate. Add sweetener (sugar, honey, or maple syrup) to taste and 4 oz. of steamed milk of choice. Top off with milk foam. Makes a 12 oz. latté.
Yerba mate is traditionally prepared in a gourd and shared among a circle of friends. Welcome the moments of community born of your own mate circle.
We fix our yerba mate in a French press every morning. It's a great way to start our day. And we love knowing that the tea is grown in the shade of the rainforest. We also love Guayaki for its sustainable business practices!

Really love this tea. We use it as is, or add our own herbs to it. This is definitely the favorite with the students in town. Always consistent in quality, and always a great taste.
I rarely start my day without my Guayaki Yerba Mate. And I often follow through with more later on. It's the perfect pick me up that doesn't leave me with coffee jute's :)
I have been drinking mate since my childhood. This particular mate is too light for my taste. I enjoy a stronger, bolder, yerba.
Good service, good product.
I drink this tea or herbs for health reasons. This tea gives me a lot of energy soothing my stomach and plenty of antioxidant that sustained a good health body. I really recommend it for everyone who wished to drink or try it. Do it for great life.
I love the original! I spoke with a young lady and I received a hand written note in a hand addressed envelope from said young lady! How awesome is that?
Guayaki yerba mate is an essential part of my day for increasing performance, focus and joy. I absolutely LOVE that this delicious morning ritual is helping to expand the rainforest of Paraguay.
I have tried several other brands of Yerba Mate, and keep coming back to Guayaki. It is simply the nicest high and the best for sustained, bright mental clarity with no "bounce" or hard landing as with coffee.
The online shopping experience was very easy and straightforward, although finding the 5lb bag took a few clicks. I imagine its not their top seller so it is not as visible as the smaller retail sized products.
Very satisfied and can highly recommend both the product and service.
Always get great products and fast service.
